Saturday 25th Mar 2017

The Touts are duking it out at FanDuel in a contest that now has Adam Ronis, Scott Pianowski, and Jeff Erickson as qualifiers for the August tournament, and I want in too.

I am taking a little more of a mainstream this time, looking at starting pitchers I think will deliver innings and whiffs, so Gio Gonzalez ($8900) is my choice against the Braves.

For hitters, I like the Padres against Jeremy Hellickson, who has trouble keeping runners off the bases, so one of my "sleepers" is second sacker Cory Spangenberg ($2400) to just get me a walk or hit or something.

But, my second low-ball play is Orioles backstop Caleb Joseph ($2500), who has been stroking it of late (and whom I believe Lord Z likes). And, yes, I know not to bank on streaks statistically; however, Joseph is in the zone. Good enough for me.

Locked and loaded and I actually really like the lineup which means I'm doomed.

That is one reason I was Gio-centric, Z.

Also, what Rob noted: already have to make some gamble somewhere. Harvey means 2-3, right?

Lots of LHB v Gio with Stults on the other side. Leaning that way.

trevor bauer tonight at $8,100 vs. the Twinkies is an interesting option too particularly if adding salary like a brantley.

Yes - was eyeing Brantley for tonight quite a bit.

Hard not to use a couple of Tribe LHB v Pelfrey in Prog

Still waffling on SP

Very tempting to start Harvey vs. Philly difficult to put together a lineup of any quality once you have him in there. I'm opting for Sonny Gray.

I like the Reds (anyone) against Noesi for hitting and playing some dodgets at Colorado vs. Butler.

I have Joseph in Tout Wars and used him for today as well. Speaking of which - need a catcher, Lawr? I have 3 :)
